BAKERSFIELD, Calif.--CSU Bakersfield's Gyasi Zardes (R-Jr., Hawthorne, Calif., Leuzinger HS) has been chosen by MLSSoccer.com's Daniel Robertson No. 1 in his midseason mock MLS SuperDraft.
Here is what Robertson has to say about Zardes;
"Want to find the next Darren Mattocks? Look no further. The 21-year-old Zardes has built on a breakout 2011 with seven goals and six assists in just nine games in 2012. Given the Galaxy’s glut of attacking talent, it’s almost not fair that LA have Homegrown rights to the forward, but rumors are that Europe could be calling this offseason."
Earlier this week, Zardes was named TopDrawerSoccer.com's Team of the Week ending Oct. 7. In two matches during the week, the 6-1 forward scored three goals and posted one assist. Over his last three matches, Zardes has scored five goals to bring his season total to seven. He leads CSUB in goals (7), assists (6) and points (20).
The Roadrunners travel to San Jose State Friday night at 7 p.m. to continue MPSF play.
